221 Rudy Gobert

Best defender in the NBA and still very young. - Thisgoronsonfire

222 Joseph Addai

Only rookie to get 1000+ yards (didn't even start the whole season) of the 06-07 season. And to top it off won a Super Bowl. Yeah reggie bush is amazing. But Addai is good.

Joseph Addai is a combination of Jim Brown and Walter Payton.

223 Frank Fredericks

Frank Fredericks is way too underrated. He is the coolest man ever!

It's so weird that his parents slept in his bed when they were scared.

226 Johan Cruyff Johan Cruyff

Better than Pele, Maradona, Messi, Ronaldo. never won a World Cup, true, but did not participate in 1978 because of threats at his family...

He looks like an Indian, but does not play like one.

Best European football player

The best in soccer with Pele

231 Damian Lillard Damian Lillard Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard is an American professional basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.

Beast mode damian your better than lebron and chris paul

He is the face of the Trail Blazers franchise - Htown3ball

He is really good and I love him but Steph Curry is probably better. No offense. But Dame Rocks

232 Antonio Brown Antonio Brown Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He is often regarded as one of the best Wide Receivers in today's game in the NFL. Brown was selected 195th overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round.

I don't think he's the best yet but if a mediocre player who is known for 1 great catch and has done nothing sense. Why shouldn't Antonio Brown be on the list. After all he is probably the best receiver in the NFL today

Sup nice catches your really good player

He helps the Steelers win a lot

Love him. Want to be like him.

233 Mark Spitz Mark Spitz Mark Andrew Spitz is an American former competitive swimmer, nine-time Olympic champion, and former world record-holder in seven events.

In the 1972 Summer Olympics Mark Spitz won seven gold medals in swimming and set seven new world records. A feat only surpassed by Michael Phelps in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

He dominated men's swimming in the late 60's and early 70's in ways never seen before. I believe that he was listed the Guinness Book of World Records on several occasions.

In the NRL, none compare. In other sports, few come close.
Comparing the dedication to the sport, to the fans, to the development - none come close. There's the humility, the longevity, great role model. Everything rolled up into one guy. Definitely the world's greatest athlete - if rugby league were a world sport, everyone would agree.

NRL. Not the most popular sport in US but in Australia... EVERYONE knows Lockyer is the greatest NRL player to ever play 'the' game! #1 Fullback #5/8th Most games/wins in Team, State and National. GO LOCKY! - evergrey123

238 Vasily Alekseyev

There is no athlete in all history that accomplished what this man, "The Greatest Sportsman" in all Soviet and Russian History accomplished. Eighty (80) world records in an undefeated ten year career (1970-1980). That is ten (10) world records per year. Further, two time Olympic Gold medal winner (1972 and 1976), and ten (10) time world-champion. Germany attacked with two respective silver and bronze medal winners in both Olympics, but could never over-power. Nor could any human over-power him on the planet period. The first man to press and clean and jerk 500 pounds or better. Squatted a verified, in Olympic Weightlifting style, 1014 pounds in the 70's. On the cover of year 1976 Sport's Illustrated magazine as "World's Strongest Man".

Alexyeev was voted the GREATEST athletic Sportsmen in ALL Soviet History. That fact alone trumps all athletes in the west. From 1970 to 1978 undefeated. Further, 80 World Record in eight years. That is, ten world records per year. No one ever comes close in total strength, quickness, power, and durability than Alexyeev. James Salemi, Schiller Park Illinois, USA
